A server for progressives who want a welfare state with solidarity, freedom and justice! We admire the progress that Nordic countries have made in economic and social justice and want to go further, including addressing the current climate crisis.
We are an international community of progressives that discuss and debate politics, play games, react to the news cycle and read books together. We are LGBTQIA+ inclusive and don't allow slurs or hate speech of any type.
We accept liberals, moderates and centrists, but socialists, communists, conservatives, libertarians, anarchists and fascists are not welcome.
"What is social democracy?"
Social democracy is a political ideology that advocates for a capitalist market economy characterized by state intervention and regulation as well as a welfare state that enables the realization of both positive and negative liberties. Its core values are freedom, justice and solidarity.
